A day in one of the most beautiful parks in Bologna, Villa Ghigi, dedicated to the memory of Peter Von Bagh. Film critic and historian, actor, writer, director, Von Bagh was the Midnight Sun Film Festival's creator in Sodankylä, in the deep north of Finland.  In 2004, together with other filmmakers from Bologna, we made a long journey to take our cinema up there, up to this highly original festival. On that occasion, a relationship of mutual esteem and affection was created that has been nourished in the years to come thanks to the opportunity to see Peter in our city as director of the Festival Cinema Ritrovato. The day of the 25th is also dedicated to him and his uncontrollable passion for cinema, and together with the 
Mammut Film, which this year celebrates its 10th anniversary. By uniting Finland, Peter, and Mammut Film, the cocktail is tasty and tasty: a day with projections, lots of cinema, creative and original, meetings, literature, music and children. 
Finnish documentary cinema, live beats, Scandinavian literature, Nordic food and screenings of published and unpublished films by Mammut Film to retrace, in a journey of visions, his ten years of life.
In addition, a space dedicated to children for a day that will accompany users from late morning until late at night. 
An unmissable midsummer party.
